Chunin Exams and meeting his final studentEdit

Shikaku was first seen at the Chunin Exams looking for students, he needed 1 more place. Soon Roku confronted him just as he wanted and was skeptical at first, but he accepted him. They began their training, Nara first was impressed by already natural talent for fighting, and was further impressed when he used the Jutsu "Shadow Clone Jutsu". They are currently training for the Exams

Chunin Exams and seeing his students hidden potentialEdit

Shikaku, like other shinobi's was present at his students preliminary fight. Before the fight, Nara gave Roku his ninja tools that consisted of kunai's, shurikans, food pills, and wire.  After which he let Roku go to his match, he saw that ROku was matched up against a medical nin named "Kabuto". He saw this would be a interesting match, despite not knowing ROku's full power. Sometime into the fight Roku used his Super Saiyan form, which impressed him. Nara, finally saw there was more to him than he expected. After the fight, Nara, Kakashi, Guy, and Kunerai, went to the infirmary to talk to ROku. Roku, already healed up wanted to go train more and to eat, but Nara said no and that he needed rest. He then asked Kunenai to use a jutsu to put him to sleep. He left with the other shinobi to discuss Roku.


When first seen, Shikaku appears to be rather simliar to his son, always saying things such as "Such a drag" but sooner it is revealed that his resolve was very strong and had a stron will and determination. Shikaku appears to not treat people like outsiders, considering he allowed his son to hang out with Naruto Uzumaki. Which is partially the reason why he didnt out cast Roku when they first met, another reason is because he see's potential in the boy. He is just waiting for Roku to confront him.
